Ava O’Shea is an up and coming interior designer in London. She does interior design spaces that are mostly upscale modern designs. But she has been personally requested to do a design at The Manor. The Manor is all old country upscale designs so she’s not sure she’s the right person, but she goes to consult anyway. When she gets there, she meets the owner Jesse Ward. She was expecting an older gentleman, but what she got was a younger, very attractive Jesse Ward. Jesse shows her around the Manor and what rooms she will be designing. Feeling very awkward and uncomfortable around this man, she quickly leaves planning on never returning. But Jesse is not willing to give up on her and forces her to admit her attraction to him.
If you’re into a book where the main character male stalks the main character female, and you like erotic romance then this is the book for you! I mean, the dude Damien, straight up stalks Ava, tells her what she can and can’t do, tells her what she can and can’t wear, tells her who she can and can’t work for. It’s just absurd! Ridiculous! Their relationship reminded me of my most dysfunctional abusive relationship I’ve been in. And let me tell you! I’ve been in some insanely detrimental relationships, and those almost looked better than this one. It was truly disgusting. BUT, the sex in the book was soooo HOT! I mean, wow! I really only finished this book for the sex scenes…they were worth it.
